Rapper F. Virtue never thought he would get married.

But after meeting his husband Tulio Machado at Frankie Sharp's weekly New York City party Westgay, the pair tied the knot in June 2014 only a year and a half later. In recognition of how much Machado inspired him and changed his life, F. Virtue wrote this song "Growing Old" and produced a music video of the pair's wedding day to accompany the track.

"I put this out to the universe to help kids who grew up feeling how I felt," F.Virtue told The Huffington Post. "I had this terrible thought that if I did ever get married, I would be too embarrassed to even have a wedding. Of course, I was insecure and not out or comfortable with myself with I was feeling that way. And now I couldn't be more proud. So, I made this to show people that there is hope, they can be happy and it's not weird! Conversely, it's beautiful."

F. Virtue and Machado's one-year anniversary is June 22, 2015. "Growing Old" will be on the rapper's upcoming album, "A Single Green Light," available on June 4th, 2015. Head here for more information.
